NBA players have been known to throw shade but Demarcus Cousins had more than a few choice words to say about NBA hottie Blake Griffin
“Of course that’s what Blake is going to say because he’s in L.A., where actors belong,” Cousins told reporters in Sacramento. “He’s an actor, so of course he would say that.”
Cousins fouled out in only 18 minutes of play, finishing with just eight points and three rebounds. Griffin was only whistled three times in his 38 minutes and finished with 14 points and nine rebounds.
“If they’re going to let it be physical it’s usually physical on both ends,” Cousins said. “You saw the game so I don’t really have to say much.”
Asked about the fifth foul he received for a play with Griffin with just over a minute left in the game, Cousins indicated that he felt Griffin was faking.
“I guess the wind from my hand hit him in the eye and I guess he got fouled by the wind,” Cousins said. “I’m not sure.”
The Kings and Clippers play again Saturday night in Los Angeles, the only home-and-home the Clippers will have this season.
